NEWS: In Week 15 against the Ravens, James Robinson suffered an ankle injury and is likely questionable heading into the early part of this week.
FANTASY TAKE: Hopefully Robinson can go in this one, as leaving fantasy owners hanging in the final championship week would be a huge disappointment to an outstanding and surprising season out of the Jaguars rusher. Where will Robinson get drafted in 2021 drafts? Early indications, from all the mock drafting we do on my YouTube Show (join us, as we mock draft weekly for 2021), indicate that Robinson coming in around early second-round. I’ve seen him go in the first-round, I’ve seen him go in the late second-round, so he has one of those ‘all over the map’ values right now as people adjust their thinking to 2021 only. If I had to slot him into my overall rankings, I safely place him in the 13-18 range. I think if we start drafting him 7 or 8 overall, we are not packing in the appropriate risk for an ‘out of nowhere’ runner, despite being RB1 promising for 2021, that heads into his second season, sometimes a sophomore slump type of season. I am not doubting the kid, he has a legit shot to shine as a RB1 again in 2021 and beyond; we just need to approach everything in 2021 with a sense of due diligence.
